Man of Myth and Legend
Truly worth the read of the entire original article. And why no person as described below or otherwise visibly non-female will go in the ladies room while my wife is in there.
A MAN IN THE WOMEN'S RESTROOM AT DISNEYLAND
March 13, 2017
I didn't know if I was going to write this blog or not. A part of me was scared it'd be shared as some transgender hot piece about yet another homophobic mom lashing out at Disney and then I'd have to deal with the wrath of the internet telling me to kill myself. So let me be clear. This isnâ€™t that story. This is a story about a biological man in the womenâ€™s restroom, but we need to discuss some gender issues.
Iâ€™ve lived in Los Angeles for over a decade and have seen my fair share of transgender/gender fluid people. They in no way offend me. I'd consider myself pretty progressive and tolerant of most things...except maybe people who identify as a person wearing socks with sandals. We all have our line in the sand and that's totally mine. But how transgender people feel, how they choose to dress or any surgeries they get, don't infringe on any parts of my life, so I support their decision to live as they see fit. I've also seen my fair share of transgender women in the women's restroom before. Not ALL the time. But over the past few years, I'd say 4-5 that I noticed. Men...who were in some stage of transition and making every attempt to be a woman from mascara to heels. Transgenders who certainly felt comfortable in the women's room and probably frightened to go into the men's. At these times, I smiledâ€¦I peed...and life went on. But 2 weeks ago something very different happened.
I was at Disneyland with my son, my friend and her son. We were over in California Adventure in the food court area. Weâ€™d just finished eating and decided to pee before we headed out to The Little Mermaid. I went to the bathroom while she watched our boys in their strollers, and then I did the same. (For anyone whoâ€™s tried to fit a stroller in a bathroom stall, you get it).
I was off to the side waiting with the two boys, when I noticed a man walk into the restroom. My first thought was â€œOh ****, heâ€™s walked in the wrong restroom by mistake. lolâ€ He took a few more steps, at which point he wouldâ€™ve definitely noticed all the women lined up and still kept walking. My next thought was, â€œMaybe heâ€™s looking for his wifeâ€¦or child and theyâ€™ve been in here a while.â€ But he didnâ€™t call out any names or look around. He just stood off to the side and leaned up against the wall.
